I drive my Suzuki Aerio SX mostly for the 11 city highway miles to work. I took it up the mountain to snow ski and it exceeded all expectations on icy roads. We got 3 snowboards, a pair of skis, and four people inside comfortably. If you are used to high-powered imports, then this car will disappoint, but all four wheels really take you around the corners quickly even when conditions are bad.
I love the AWD, 100,000 mile warranty, and tall / roomy interior.
Install a transmission that lets the 155hp's run. Better struts would make this 3,000 lb. car handle properly at high speeds. Why are tinted windows not an option?
